Abstract:

The shaped charge jet formation, fragmentation and penetration in rolled-homogenous armour RHA steel target plates were investigated using the explicit, nonlinear lagrangian finite element method. The investigation was conducted in two-dimensions axisymmetric for a shaped charge with a 40mm cone diameters. The results obtained using numerical simulations were compared to the experimental results obtained from experimental tests. In addition, the dynamic behaviour of the jet and target were compared to the visual data obtained from X-rays to confirm jet formation, fragmentation and penetration predictions.
